BootstrapBootcamp Live Streaming Series: How to Get Rid of Chaos and Clutter

BootstrapBootcampThank you for being patient while I determine the best direction for BootstrapBootcamp.  I’ve decided to do away with the master-mind group and host a FREE live online series instead – webinar style.  I’m using join.me so space is limited to only 250 people at a time.  The first webinar – How to Get Rid of Chaos and Clutter will stream on Tuesday, August, 19th @ 8:30PM EST and will be hosted weekly after that.  The link for the live stream is http://join.me/TheMullingsGroup but since space is limited you will have to reserve your spot by registering at http://bit.ly/GetRidOfChaosAndClutter.  There will be a Q&A section at the end and the recorded webinar will be posted on Udemy at  http://bit.ly/FreeBootstrapBootcamp - so more videos at last!

Thanks again for your patience and for helping me give away 1 million courses to entrepreneur-leaders – like you – all over the world.

Are You a Consumer, Provider or Producer?

head-shotPeople fall into all sorts of categories, but the 3 that have intrigued me lately are Consumers, Providers and Producers.  We are all consumers to some extent because we all buy goods and services that we use on ourselves, our families and even in our businesses.  However, what sets apart the day-to-day consumer from a pure Consumer is that, is that the consumption cycle of a pure Consumer is buy – use – produce waste.  Consumers are necessary to keep the business cycle going but as far as making an impact on the world they are the least relevant.  Next we have Providers.  These are our re-sellers and distributors, our car salesmen and our hardcore sales people.  They bring to pure Consumers and those of us that also consume, the goods and services that we need.  They don’t actually create anything they’re just a channel from the creator to the consumer.  Their consumption cycle is buy – consume – resell and they are the engines that keep the markets going.  Finally we have the Producers – they are the creators.  Producers are the innovators, the ones who look down the line, determine what Consumers and other Producers need and create it.  The world would stop without Producers – nothing new would happen and problems would go unsolved.

So, are you a Producer, Provider or Consumer or some mix?  From a business perspective, businesses cannot be pure Consumers, so they are either Providers or Producers.  If your business is a pure Provider, then chances are your success or failure will rest on how fast Producers create and Consumers consume – which may be slow in a down economy.  If your business is a pure Producer, then you stand the chance of running out of money before your “lucky break” because you’re spending all your time creating (spending money) and not enough time selling (earning money).  You need the right balance of Producer and Provider where you solve problems and bring those solutions to those who need it.

Here is a free online course to help you become a Producer/Provider.  It’s a holistic entrepreneurship program that develops you as an individual first then shows you how to create a business out of who you are - http://bit.ly/FreeBootstrapBootcamp.

 

The Reason for Business is NOT to Make Money

head-shotI have a radical idea…

The primary reason for a business is NOT to make money.

A business exists for only 2 reasons…to solve problems and provide a platform for individuals to live out their purpose. The better a business is at accomplishing these objectives and telling enough of the right people, they WILL make money.

I want to develop 7 billion entrepreneur-leaders. People who:

  1. Understand money and become and live generously debt free
  2. Know their purpose and live meaningful lives
  3. Start and run their own full-time or part-time business
  4. Secure the future of our world by leaving an enduring legacy

Why? I want to change the world by ending poverty by unleashing knowledge that will empower entrepreneur-leaders who will use commerce to usher solutions that solves problems and meet the needs of people.

I am currently giving away one of the best online entrepreneurship courses to 1 million people for free – no strings attached. Click here to sign-up.

How to Get Rid of Chaos and Clutter – Forever

Keno-MullingsWhen most people hear the words chaos and they automatically begin to think about clothes lying on the floor, books thrown out-of-place, the kitchen sink overflowing with dishes a desk filled with disorganized paper and the list goes on. Certainly all of these things define chaos and clutter; however, there is another way to truly define chaos and clutter that covers every aspect of our lives. Chaos is best defined as the absolute lack of order. There is nothing natural about chaos. In fact even the waves crashing on the shores have harmony even though it appears to be chaotic harmony. Another thing to note about chaos is that it exists when disorder is allowed to persist. To get an idea of this place a piece of paper where it shouldn’t be and leave it there.

Now if chaos is the absence of order, what is order? Order can be defined as: doing what should be done when it should be done. It is also when people and STUFF are where they are supposed when they are supposed to be there. Just as chaos is the lack of order, order is the absence of chaos. Remove chaos and you will achieve order. If you have problems with order then it is guaranteed that you will have problems with time, money and/or both. Therefore; your mission should you choose to accept it is to…

Achieve and Maintain Order!

The best way to take Chaos and clutter by the horn and bring it under control is by employing the SSUM (Stop Seen Unseen and Maintain) Approach to Order Management.

The SSUM Approach to Order Management

Stop - any and all activities that promote chaos and causes disorders. The main aim of this activity is to bring to an end to the insanity.

 

Seen - doing this activity means that you will never:

  • Pile another dirty dish
  • Leave another piece of clothing on the floor
  • Put another piece of paper on the floor

The main aim of engaging in the Seen activity is to achieve quick gratification, free your mind of visual clutter, free yourself from the bondage of STUFF and have a clean and healthy atmosphere. The best way to achieve this is by simply giving away or throwing away everything that is Seen but out-of-order. If you are unable to give or throw away your Seen items then try this instead: put them into boxes to get rid of all visual evidence of clutter.

Don’t get bogged down by the little things, give away or throw away as much STUFF as you can. Now this is by no means an easy project so here is some advice:

  • If you haven’t used it in over one year then get rid of it
  • Pretend that a VIP will be walking through your house in a few moments

 Once the chaos and clutter have been removed you should then dust the furniture, sweep the floors and vacuum the carpets.

 

Unseen in a sense follows a similar pattern to the activities of Seen. Engaging in the Unseen activity means that you will give away or throw away everything that is Unseen that is out-of-order. Engaging in the Unseen activity means that you are freeing your mind from mental clutter, achieving peace of mind and reaching to the point where everywhere is clean and healthy. So how can you achieve this? Make a list of 100 things that every member of the family must keep. Do this for your business as well.

 Even if you feel that you cannot possibly live with 100 or less personal items (in all honesty you should be able to do this), this exercise will help you to determine what is truly important and what is not. Oh and yes a pair of socks counts as 1 item.

Once this is finished give away or throw away STUFF. As with Seen once complete remember that you should then dust the furniture, sweep the floors and vacuum the carpets.

 

Maintain is simply maintaining the order that you have achieved from the afore-mentioned 3 exercises. Imaging how discouraging it would be if you were to spend all this time kicking chaos and clutter to the curb only to have things go back to where they were or to get worse. Like money and time STUFF needs to be told where to go or it will settle in the place of least resistance. Here are some great ways to maintain order:

Use bins to triage paper so that they are in the process of being recycled, acted upon or filed.

  • Mail – all new unopened mails
  • To Do – This should include only things that needs to be completed
  • To Read – This should include anything that should be read before it is shredded, recycled or placed in the “To Do” file
  • Bills – Schedule all bill payments
  • Receipts – Scan (Shoeboxed/Evernote) shred recycle
  • To File – Conduct a filing exercise once per week
  • Kids – put away once per week
  • Stuff to Put Away – Conduct this exercise once each week as well

So remember:

  • That chaos exists when disorder is allowed to persist
  • Use the SSUM approach to eliminate chaos and clutter
  • If there is no order you are essentially putting your money and time at peril
  • To do what you can when you can and when you can do what you can

If you use the SSUM method to get rid of chaos and clutter, then it is guaranteed that you will not only kick chaos and clutter to the curb, you will also be achieving and maintaining order that will lead to increased wealth, health and peace of mind.

How to Think and Cause Change

What to Think About

Matthew 6:10

‘Your kingdom come.
Your will be done,
On earth as it is in heaven.

Think about establishing God’s Kingdom in your life and in your sphere of influence.  Think about doing God’s will on earth as it is in heaven.

Philippians 4:8

Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever ispure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things (think on and weigh and take account of these things [fix your minds on them].

If what you are thinking about does not pass through the Philippians 4:8 filter, then think about something else.

Having the Right Heart Helps with Right Thinking

1 Peter 5:1-11

Therefore, I exhort the elders among you, as your fellow elder and witness of the sufferings of Christ, and a partaker also of the glory that is to be revealed, 2 shepherd the flock of God among you, exercising oversight not under compulsion, but voluntarily, according to the will of God; and not for sordid gain, but with eagerness; 3 nor yet as lording it over [a]those allotted to your charge, but [b]proving to be examples to the flock. 4 And when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the unfading [c]crown of glory. 5 You younger men, likewise, be subject to your elders; and all of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, for God is opposed to the proud, but gives grace to the humble.

Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you at the proper time,7 casting all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you. 8 Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. 9 [d]But resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same experiences of suffering are being accomplished by your [e]brethren who are in the world. 10 After you have suffered for a little while, the God of all grace, who called you to His eternal glory in Christ, will Himself perfect, confirm, strengthen and establish you. 11 To Him be dominion forever and ever. Amen.

Romans 12:3

For through the grace given to me I say to everyone among you not to think more highly of himself than he ought to think; but to think so as to have sound judgment, as God has allotted to each a measure of faith.

Being humble is submitting to God and those He has placed over you.  Being humble is not thinking more highly of yourself than you ought.  Humility is the gateway to right thinking.

Why Think

Proverbs 23:6-8

Do not eat the bread of [d]a selfish man,
Or desire his delicacies;
7 For as he [
e]thinks within himself, so he is.
He says to you, “Eat and drink!”
But his heart is not with you.
8 You will vomit up [
f]the morsel you have eaten,
And waste your [
g]compliments.

Who you are is how you think and how you think is who you are.  How you think is formed by the answers to the questions that have been forced upon who you are.

Romans 12:1-2

12 Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice,[a]acceptable to God, which is your [b]spiritual service of worship. 2 And do not be conformed to this [c]world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may [d]prove what the will of God is, that which is good and [e]acceptable and perfect.

Thinking correctly gives you access to the good, acceptable and perfect will of God.

Luke 6:43-45

43 “For a good tree does not bear bad fruit, nor does a bad tree bear good fruit. 44 For every tree is known by its own fruit. For men do not gather figs from thorns, nor do they gather grapes from a bramble bush. 45 A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart[g] brings forth evil.For out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.

Only God can truly change your heart.  Our spirit then communes with His Spirit.  Change your heart and then change your mind.  Then speak into being the wonderful imaginations of your thoughts.

The Power of Right Thinking

Genesis 11:6

The Lord said, “Behold, they are one people, and they all have [a]the same language. And this is what they began to do, and now nothing which they purpose [KRM: plan, imagine] to do will be [b]impossible for them.

Right thinking mixed with agreement and the spoken word (declarations or decrees) is a doorway to the impossible.

How to Change Your Thinking

2 Timothy 3:16-17

16 All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness,17 so that the servant of God[a] may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.

How to Make Decisions

Proverbs 3:5-8

Trust in the Lord with all your heart
And do not lean on your own understanding.
6 In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He will make your paths straight.
7 Do not be wise in your own eyes;
Fear the Lord and turn away from evil.
8 It will be healing to your [
c]body
And refreshment to your bones.

Acts 1:23-26

23 So they put forward two men, Joseph called Barsabbas (who was also called Justus), and Matthias. 24 And they prayed and said, “You, Lord, who know the hearts of all men, show which one of these two You have chosen 25 to [a]occupy this ministry and apostleship from which Judas turned aside to go to his own place.”26 And they [b]drew lots for them, and the lot fell [c]to Matthias; and he was [d]added to the eleven apostles.

Worry is the Poison of Healthy Thinking

Matthew 6:25-33

25 “For this reason I say to you, [n]do not be worried about your [o]life, as to what you will eat or what you will drink; nor for your body, as to what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? 26 Look at the birds of the [p]air, that they do not sow, nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth much more than they? 27 And who of you by being worried can add a single [q]hour to his [r]life? 28 And why are you worried about clothing? Observe how the lilies of the field grow; they do not toil nor do they spin, 29 yet I say to you that not even Solomon in all his glory clothed himself like one of these. 30 But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the furnace, will He not much more clothe you? You of little faith! 31 Do not worry then, saying, ‘What will we eat?’ or ‘What will we drink?’ or ‘What will we wear for clothing?’ 32 For the Gentiles eagerly seek all these things; for your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. 33 But [s]seek first [t]His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be [u]added to you.

34 “So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will [v]care for itself. [w]Each day has enough trouble of its own.

Proverbs 23:4-5

Do not weary yourself to gain wealth,
Cease from your [
b]consideration of it.
5 [
c]When you set your eyes on it, it is gone.
For wealth certainly makes itself wings
Like an eagle that flies toward the heavens.
